Why the Chargers’ 2013 Draft wasn’t all that and a bag of chips

Round 6: Pick 11 (179)
Tourek Williams, OLB
Selection Position: (19.8 value points) Down into Mr. Irrelevant territory here.
Value Added: Tourek stepped in and started 6 games after Freeney and Ingram were unavailable. He posted a sack and 10 tackles in 2013. He provides depth and a project that has promising measurables as a 3-4 OLB.
Opportunity Cost: Not much. We needed OLB depth and he played alright when called upon. He still needs work, but I can’t say we should have used the pick elsewhere. Baccari Rambo was available, and thank goodness TT didn’t fall into that. +1 for TT.
My Grade: B+
